On Two Wheels
Well, it finally happened…I became one of those people I used to curse at, quietly under my breath. I became a cyclist…
Now, it isn’t quite as crazy as you might think. You see, as it turns out, Cardiff is actually quite a good place to go cycling and as a “Sustainable Travel City”, it is only going to get better.
